"The Comparison Trap"

Talking about lupus with people who don't have it is hard.
Understanding your own condition without comparing yourself to others can be tricky too! 
  • Do you find yourself searching the internet about your symptoms?

  • Do you compare how you are feeling to others?

  • Are you posting on pages about your symptoms because you are wondering what is "normal"?

Volunteers are an integral part of our ability to support local lupus communities. When you volunteer you help us get one step closer to curing this mysterious and devastating disease. You can make a difference!

Become a Corporate Champion

Each year, many companies join the movement to solve the cruel mystery of lupus through corporate teams, sponsorship, cause-related marketing, and outright giving.

Every advance in the understanding of a disease such as lupus—its causes, its effects on the body, the development of new drugs and treatments—is based on research. The Lupus Foundation of America’s Center for Clinical Trials Education is the resource for people with lupus and their families who want to learn about clinical trials.

You can help us solve the cruel mystery of lupus by participating in an upcoming event. These are great ways to connect with others living with lupus and their caregivers.

Get Involved

Our local community network in Iowa is the driving force behind the progress we make in serving those living with lupus locally.

When you get involved you'll join hundreds of volunteers, people living with lupus, caregivers, healthcare professionals, researchers and donors collectively focussed on a future free from lupus.
We have several different options you can choose that will create direct impact. Your involvement will make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
